In honor of Dr. Martins, the Department of Counseling Psychology hosted the inaugural John Martins Clinical Workshop series that occurred on Friday April 29th, 2016 in the Virginia Harrison Parlor, Lathrop Hall. We were pleased to welcome Dr. Hanna Levenson to campus for an intermediate state-of-the-art clinical workshop on Brief Dynamic Psychotherapy. Dr. Levenson is an internationally recognized expert in brief dynamic, emotionally-focused, relational psychotherapy.
Faculty, students, community supervisors and clinicians attended the workshop and CEU credits were offered for the full-day training. Drs. Bruce Wampold and Stephanie Graham coordinated and organized the event on behalf of the department.
CP Stance on Campus Hate/Bias Incidents - Faculty, students, and staff in the Department of Counseling Psychology work hard to create a diverse and inclusive learning community with an emphasis on training culturally competent practitioners at the Master’s and doctoral levels. We have been distressed to witness the escalation of hate/bias-driven speech and actions, both nationally and here at UW. We are committed to creating a culture of inclusion in the department and the university, and to a vision of education that includes affirmation and openness to the breadth of human diversity. We endorse the following statements, on creating an inclusive campus climate:
